danielle kraeseDanielle Kraese is a writer, editor, and recovering improviser. Her humor has been published online by The New Yorker, McSweeney’s, Reductress, The Belladonna, Points in Case, Slackjaw, and Weekly Humorist. An excerpt of her essay “Apologies and a Few Things I’m Sorry For” can be found in Heather Sellers’ The Practice of Creative Writing (however, it’s a college textbook, and according to her sister nobody reads those).

Danielle studied journalism at a top party school and had a great time. After graduating, she worked a dozen or so unusual jobs before spending three years in book publishing. During that time, she was surprised by how many of her doctors tried to push their manuscript on her mid-exam (it was two, but that’s two too many when you’re in a cloth robe). Now, she’s a commerce editor at Bustle and can tell you everything you never wanted to know about socks and bed sheets.
